How To Prepare The Chicken
Here's how to prepare the chicken for this recipe:
Prepping The Chicken
Pat the chicken breasts dry and then use a sharp knife to cut the chicken into strips.
Creating The Ranch Seasoning
Take a ranch sauce mix and combine it with a few tablespoons of water to create the ranch seasoning for this recipe. You can also use your own homemade ranch mixture if desired.
Preparing The Coating Station
To set up the coating station, you need three bowls. The first bowl should have ranch seasoning in it. The second bowl should have had beaten eggs in it. The third bowl should have crushed cornflakes in it.
There are two ways to cook this Cornflake Ranch Chicken:
Switch on to preheat your oven to 375 °F (190 °C). Oil a baking sheet with cooking oil or line it with parchment paper.
Take the strips of chicken and dip them into the bowl with ranch seasoning, making sure they are completely coated. Then, dip them into the bowl of beaten eggs. Finally, dip them into the bowl of crushed cornflakes.
Place the strips onto the oiled baking sheet and bake the chicken for 25 minutes or until golden brown and cooked through to 165 degrees Fahrenheit.
For this method, heat a skillet on medium-high heat with vegetable oil or your favorite cooking oil.
Take the chicken strips and dip them into the ranch seasoning mix, then into the bowl of beaten eggs. Finally, dip them into the bowl of crushed cornflakes.
Place the strips on the hot skillet and fry for 3–4 minutes on each side or until golden brown and cooked through to 165 degrees Fahrenheit.
To make this Cornflake Ranch Chicken recipe, follow these steps:
Coating The Chicken
Take the strips of chicken and dip them into the bowl of ranch seasoning, making sure they are completely coated. Then, dip them into the bowl of beaten eggs. Finally, dip them into the bowl of crushed cornflakes.
Cooking The Chicken
Bake or fry your chicken strips according to either the baking method or the frying method described above. Be sure to check the internal temperature of your baked chicken with a meat thermometer to ensure it has reached 165 °F (74 °C).
Tips For Crispy Results
For extra crispy chicken, you can also lightly spray the baking sheet or skillet with cooking spray before adding the chicken strips. This will help them get nice and crunchy while cooking. You can also use bread crumbs in place of the cornflakes for an even crunchier result.
This Cornflake Ranch Chicken can be served with your favorite sides, such as:
Coleslaw is the ideal side dish to accompany this crunchy and flavorful Cornflake Ranch Chicken. This classic side dish is light and cool, making it a great contrast to the warm and crunchy chicken. It also adds a pop of freshness that complements the savory flavor of the ranch seasoning. To make coleslaw, simply combine shredded cabbage, celery, carrots, and a light dressing of mayonnaise and vinegar or lemon juice.
Baked Sweet Potato Fries
These fries are a delicious and healthy way to complete your Cornflake Ranch Chicken meal. For an even quicker meal, you can microwave the sweet potatoes instead of making them in the oven.
To bake them, simply cut the potatoes into thin strips, lightly coat them with oil and seasonings of your choice, and then bake in the oven for 15–20 minutes, or until golden brown and crispy.
Steamed vegetables are another great side to pair with this crunchy chicken dish. To make them, simply add slices of your favorite veggies to a steamer basket and steam for around 10 minutes. For extra flavor, you can also drizzle the steamed vegetables with a light dressing of olive oil, balsamic vinegar, or lemon juice.
Mashed Potatoes are a classic side dish for any meal. To make them, you can either boil or steam the mashed potatoes until tender, then mash them with a potato masher or fork. For added flavor, stir in some butter, sour cream, and milk. Finally, top it off with some chopped herbs, such as parsley or chives, for an extra burst of flavor.
For an extra tasty treat, add some flavorful dipping sauce to your Cornflake Ranch Chicken. Try a creamy ranch dip or a spicy honey mustard for even more flavor. You can also make your own homemade sauce with just a few simple ingredients, such as Greek yogurt, mayo, garlic, and herbs.
